Very charming hotel, with literary atmosphere. Close to the beach and center. Sophisticated but easy going at the same time. Perfect to attend the Art Basel in December. Very fine decor and amenities.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 23 April 2016 via mobile

We chose the Betsy because of rave reviews from family and friends. We stayed at the Betsy for a few nights mid week in the beginning of April (after the busy spring break season). This was the first stay at the Betsy. The Betsy hotel is a nice reprieve from the large (and often loud) resorts on Collins Ave. The...

We stayed 2 nights at this lovely hotel on Ocean Drive which is generally quite noisy. Some places on Ocean Drive make you feel like you are in some kind of ultra touristic Spanish holiday city. But the Betsy is a hotel with a lot of charm. Nicely decorated and the kitchen is delicious. If you are lucky enough to...

Only visited the bar and Resturant but was possibly the best meal I managed to find on Miami Beach. The venue itself is classy, current and contemporary. Would happily visit again and found the staff to be knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. The menu was well balanced and offered good choice. The Yorkshire pudding style appetisers were a conversation point but...

On our stroll through South Beach we stopped at the Betsy for a lunch break. What a great experience!!! One of our party had stayed there previously and so we knew it was going to be excellent, however the service and quality of our lunch exceeded our expectations. The staff were beyond impressive. First they were apologetic that they couldn't...

For my first hotel review, I chose this one. Great location (Ocean Drive!), small but cozy. The staff are prepared and the hotel is beautifully decorated. The only "but" was the noise coming from the streets, especially in the morning. Apart from that, it was a great stay.

For our last lunch in Miami Beach we elected to walk two doors down from our hotel to The Betsy, both a hotel and restaurant on Ocean Drive. We picked The Betsy for their lovely outdoor dining area and for the location - close to our own. First the high marks: Lovely setting with sweeping views of palm trees, beach...

Stayed at the W, but would consider this next time. Position is excellent for the boardwalk and local area. Although not right on the beach. We booked for dinner and had a fabulous meal on the balcony. Amazing steak, try their special (yorkshire pudding style) bread.. truly worth it on its own!

“While there was a nice Keurig machine, there is no frig so I would suggest filling the ice bucket the night before and putting in the 2 waters they leave complimentary so that you can have some nice cold water in the morning. The in-hotel free continental breakfast was great. I wish we had dinner at LT as I heard excellent things about it from our cousins who live in Coral Gables. ”
